IMMIGRATION CHALLENGE NOT OVER - AMERICA SACRIFICE ZONE
January 16, 2012
Re: “The next immigration challenge” by Dowell Myers, NYT, January 11, 2012-01-12
In his recent commentary, University of Southern California professor and New York Times guest columnist Dowell Myers said, “The immigration crisis roiling in America for decades has faded into history.”
In reality, it accelerates beyond anyone’s understanding. Because of legal and illegal immigration, the PEW Hispanic Center predicted America’s population will rise by 100 million by 2035 and 138 million by 2050—90 percent driven by legal immigration. “US Population Projections” by Fogel/Martin and the US Census Bureau present similar numbers.
While the world population reached seven billion in 2011, it adds one billion every 12 years on its way to 10.2 billion by 2050—within 38 years. Places like Haiti, Mexico, Somalia, India, Congo, Sudan and Bangladesh send their exploding populations to Canada, America, Australia and Europe with no end in sight. The third world adds 80 million annually, net gain.
While Mexico’s birthrate declines, it expects to rise from its current 114 million via population momentum, to 146 million by 2050. More will flee northward for a better life in the United States. (Source: UN population projections)
“Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide [that adds 80 million net gain annually to the planet], but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all—ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet.” -Dr. Otis Graham, Unguarded Gates
While Myers paints a picture through rose colored glasses, he neglects the hard facts of our diminishing water, energy and resource base in America. In 2012, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Arizona and California face ominous water shortages. At Peak Oil, our energy grows more tenuous and depleted with humans burning 84 million barrels of oil 24/7. When it runs out and it will run out, whether 20, 30 or 40 years from now—we will be left with 438 million people to feed and limited or no gas for tractors. Reality check: there are no alternative energies on the horizon to equate to the energy slave of oil.
Myers said our most challenging problem is about assimilation. We already know that’s not working as we press “1” for Spanish, “2” for Arabic in cities like Detroit and “3” for English for what’s left of Americans. I’m here to tell you that it’s about a viable and sustainable civilization. And, we’re losing it. Can America sustain an added 138 million people by 2050? Can we maintain our quality of life and standard of living? Answer: not a chance!
"Unlimited population growth cannot be sustained; you cannot sustain growth in the rates of consumption of resources. No species can overrun the carrying capacity of a finite land mass. This Law cannot be repealed and is not negotiable.” -Dr. Albert Bartlett, University of Colorado
What about ecological footprint? Every person added to America causes the destruction of 25.4 acres of land to support that person. (Source: www.footprintnetwork.org) If you take 100 million people times 25.4 acres, that equals to 2.54 billion acres of wilderness and arable land destroyed. We suffer animal extinction rates of 250 annually in the lower 48 states in 2012. What will it be in 38 years with that much loss of habitat? What about carrying capacity for our fellow four legged, hooved, winged, furred and finned travelers?
"Upwards of two hundred species, mostly of the large, slow-breeding variety are becoming extinct every day because more and more of the earth's carrying capacity is systematically being converted into human carrying capacity. These species are being burnt out, starved out, and squeezed out of existence." -Daniel Quinn
At current rates of failed states like Congo, Bangladesh, Mexico, India, Somalia and the like, we must ask ourselves if we want to become the “sacrifice zone” for the world’s exploding and unsustainable nations. How many can we import into this country when we already suffer 46 million Americans subsisting on food stamps, 13.4 million American children living below the poverty line, 68 percent of African American children are brought up by single mothers and over 15 million Americans cannot secure a job?

Professor Myers needs to walk off the USC campus and obtain a reality dose of the ramifications of mass immigration and its deleterious effects on our own citizens, environment and quality of life. Instead of more immigration, we need a moratorium on all immigration until we move toward a sustainable civilization with a stable population. Anything less is national suicide.
Professional like Myers talk out of their armpits and expect us to accept their balderdash. The New York Times, run by elitist power managers expect us to swallow that nonsense. If you would like to contest Myers’ ridiculous commentary, click the link, read the piece and then write a “letter to the editor” rebuttal to the New York Times. Reference the date, article and author as you see it above my commentary. Tell the NYT what you think. firstname.lastname@example.org By sending them 100,000 emails contradicting that intellectual gadfly and academic nincompoop Myers, we might see some changes in the New York Times’ bias for legal and illegal immigration. Conviction without action is merely entertainment. Take action!
